Prevent & Treat with the Best Defense - COAT DEFENSE®

The dry barrier solution to equine skin & coat problems

Does your horse suffer from scratches, mud fever, cannon crud or dew poisoning? Do they get hives, painful bug bites or even summer sores? Have they ever had a painful wound, laceration or proud flesh? COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE is an all-natural, safe and effective solution that can help speed the healing of multiple equine skin ailments.

Our paste can be used on horses who have broken skin or open wounds to create a protective barrier. It relieves on contact, all while continually drawing out toxins and moisture, finally allowing skin cells to mend. It is non-toxic if licked, and can safely be reapplied as needed.


  • Speeds healing on insect bites, scratches, wounds, summer sores and proud flesh.
  • Relieves itch caused by insect bites, sweet itch, inflammation and cellulitis.
  • Acts as a poultice on inflammation and cellulitis.
  • Creates a barrier between insects and horses’ skin when applied in a diluted formula.
  • Prevents summer sores by creating a barrier when applied to broken skin.
  • Humans love it for bites, stings, poison ivy, acne, and splinters!
  • Prior to application, gently clean any dirt or debris from treatment area. DO NOT pick off any existing scabs.Allow scabs to fall off on their own with Paste.
  • Using fingertips, scoop paste from container, and spread thickly over treatment area. Spread as if covering bread with peanut butter, spread to surrounding areas and down to the skin. Do not rub in. 
  • Let paste dry to a near white shell and leave on for several days.
  • Reapply as necessary until skin is fully healed.
  • For open wounds, to achieve better adhesion of the paste, first dry oozing by patting with a clean cloth and/or applying COAT DEFENSE® daily Preventative Powder.
  • Paste is also effective if thinned out with water or witch hazel. A more paint like layer of the paste provides an effective barrier between exposed skin (ears, bellies, etc.) and biting insects.
  • To remove, please wet first. Paste become abrasive when it is dry.
  • Use COAT DEFENSE® daily Preventative Powder to prevent future flare-ups. It’s a game changer for prevention!

For dark horses: In very rare instances, regular use of COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE may magnify the lightening effect of the sunlight and sweat. For our peace of mind, please test in a small area first.

    I love The Coat Defense Drying Paste! It works so well for so many things! I use it for “cannon bone crud” and hock sores on my horse with great success. Even used it once to help draw out a splinter on my finger and it worked! It truly does what they say it will! I plan to always have a jar at the barn and at home!

    Awesome product

    I am very pleased with this product. It’s so easy to apply/use and doesn’t smell awful like some do. My horse has an old proud flesh injury that he scraped open and I’ve been using this to help it dry out and heal. I’m also battling scratches and it has done wonders with that. Will continue to buy this in the future!

    Using in horses bald spots from fungus. Covers well and is helping them to heal. Only neg comment is I feel it’s a small jar for the price.

    Miracle Drug

    Amazing! My Quarter Horse Connor had a golf-ball-sized growth on this tail, about two inches below the dock. The vet didn't know what it was and said better to leave it than take it off. It had a crusty seal and it was on there probably four years. A friend loaned me your product. In about a week, the growth had DISINTEGRATED and now all that is left is a tiny, 1/4" sealed sore. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
